Jacquelyn Frank always has the ability to make me lose myself in a book or a series. Yet again she has created a world that is a pleasure to visit and fun to learn and expand on through this series. Bound in Darkness is the fourth book and the conclusion in the intense series of immortal brothers who angered the gods and have been punished for it. The characters are interesting and engaging. The pages sizzle between the main characters as they fight to save Maxum from the unending punishment. The book is a page turner and is very hard to put it down. I definitely recommend reading this book in order with the series, it will just add to the enjoyment.

His brothers have all won their freedom and now Maxum is on the hunt to find a way to beat his curse. He meets Airianne and must try to find a way to get her to help him in his fight. They need to determine whether they can trust each other and what exactly their feelings are for each other.
From New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank comes the captivating conclusion to the sizzling series featuring four immortal warrior brothers who love as hard as they fight.
After drinking from the fountain of immortality along with his brothers, Maxum is condemned by the gods to be entombed in the earth. Even though he has now been granted a reprieve by day, each night he is buried anew, his rock-hard body immobilized, his bones crushed by the pressure. When he emerges, his body heals, but his spirit remains scarred. There is only one way for Maxum to be completely free: He must kill the god who cursed him.
The task will require tremendous power, so Maxum must gather talismans to equip him for the battle. To help him on this quest, Maxum approaches the alluring Airianne and strikes a bargain as tempting as it is audacious. A skilled thief, Airianne could be a valuable ally, if only Maxum could trust her. Will this stealthy seductress also try to steal his heart—or will their boldness end up getting them both buried?
